Stacie Tepe, a 2L, won the 10th Annual Carl “Tobey” Oxholm Summer Fellowship, which will provide her with living expenses during a summer internship with the Philadelphia City Solicitor’s Office.
Tepe will work in the office’s Child Welfare Unit.
“I’m very excited about working in the Solicitor’s Office,” said Tepe, who eventually hopes to work for a public agency.
Tepe is the first accelerated JD student to receive an Oxholm Fellowship, which is funded through a generous gift from Tobey Oxholm, who led efforts to launch the Kline School of Law while serving as general counsel of Drexel University.
Before becoming a law student, Tepe worked as an adoptions supervisor with Delta Community Supports in Glenside, Pennsylvania and as a supervisor of volunteers for Court Appointed Special Advocates of St. Joseph County in South Bend, Indiana.
